AmoHive in Ukraine

  • Our IT apiary is becoming more and more popular, and primarily for domestic universities.
    AmoHive and the Volodymyr Dahl East Ukrainian National University have been signed a joint memorandum on the start of scientific and research works using the IT apiary from AmoHive. This will be a wide range of scientific research: from the creation of semi-automatic smart beehives, prototypes of electromagnetic means of combating the Varroa Destructor, to data processing using Data Science methods. A separate direction is the creation of a knowledge base that combines beekeeping, microprocessor technology, electronics, telecommunications and software.

The IT apiary consists of 10 identical AmoHive smart hives.

Simultaneously with the opening of the IT apiary, several unique research studies were launched:

1. Comparing the development of 3 bee races that are the most popular in Ukraine.  These were: Carniolan honey bee  , Apis mellifera sossimai   and Apis mellifera carpatica .
2. Obtaining and analysing relational data of bee colonies during spring development and honey collection (acacia, rapeseed, buckwheat, sunflower, etc.)
3. Obtaining and analysing relational data on the swarming ability of different bee races, creating new methods of bee wintering that should be adapted to climate change, and other studies to optimise IoT work in smart hives.

Separately,  we are pleased to announce the creation of a lecture course for Ukrainian children that combines knowledge of electronics, programming and beekeeping into a single preparatory course.

We invite universities and colleges in Ukraine and other countries to cooperate.

  • In early spring, the Pear and Cornus trees were pollinated by bees. These are quite rare fruit trees, but they also need to be pollinated by bees in the spring.

“…Ukrainian beekeeper Prokopovych studied the biology of bee colonies and strove to improve existing methods of beekeeping. His main intention was to develop methods that allowed the least disturbance and damage to bees. ..These efforts resulted in 1814 in the invention of the world’s first frame hive, which allowed an easier honey harvest. Another invention was a wooden partition with apertures passable only by worker bees, now called a queen excluder. It made possible the harvest of pure honey from the frames. Prokopovych’s inventions represented a landmark in the history of beekeeping and marked the beginning of commercial beekeeping…..”

  • April 2019. Our hives are testing.

This time our hive was lested by a breeding queen company. Let me introduce: Family Apiary “Lendel”, Mrs. Maria Lendel. The apiary are specializing in production good quality queens of the APIS MELLIFERA CARPATICA.
We have equipped the hive with additional sensors necessary for the successful control of the production of quality Queen bees. The Apiary have been designed in the traditional and history of beekeeping style.
Please, look at these stylish beehives!

  • March-April 2019. 

We have given our Amohive to one of the best video bloggers in beekeeping, Mr. Adrey Baskevith. He have recorded film about our hive, which has ben collected more than 80,000 views for the 4 weeks!
As a result, we received a lot of contacts, an orders for delivery our AmoHives, as well, and many interesting suggestions and ideas!
Our beehives will go to the USA, Europe, Israel, Canada, and of course Ukraine and Poland!
